Car Hire, Van, Ute & Minibus Hire Perth or Mandurah

road-through-the-outbackIf you are planning a trip, the first thing to do is to arrange transportation. When driving for long distances, you want a comfortable vehicle that has had routine inspections done and a good history. Perhaps the easiest and most convenient solution to getting around town then is to rent a car.

The process is simple and straightforward, especially with Ace Rent a Car where you can expect great service and an extensive fleet of vehicles to choose from.

Here we look at how to maximise your rental experience during the holidays.

Book a Car Rental Early

The holidays are the perfect time to get the family together for a trip around Australia.

But it also means that more people than usual will be scrambling to book rentals. The last thing [...]

101071822Whether you are in the city for business or pleasure, you really must make time to explore some of the many attractions to be found here. If you arrange your budget car rental at Perth airport before you arrive, not only will you be able to drive yourself to your hotel, you will also be free to explore the city at your own pace during your stay. Below, you will find a short list of some of the best local attractions, both north and south of the Swan River.

Either Side of the Swan

Although crossing the river is not a difficult task – there are a number of conveniently located bridges that span it as it winds its way through the centre of the city – dividing your tours into days spent north and days [...]

153561583During the holiday season, Perth’s roadways are busier than ever. In addition to the usual traffic seen in this area, you also see spikes in congestion as people set out to do their holiday shopping and make preparations for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. And then you have the influx of people flying in to rent a car in Perth and visit their friends and family. Needless to say, things can become a bit hectic on Perth’s roadways at this time of year.

Even so, there’s still a lot to enjoy about driving around Perth during the holiday season – from admiring the Christmas lights to rolling down your windows and enjoying the warm, summer weather. Ace Rent a Car offers some outstanding deals on budget car rental in Perth. To that end, we decided to [...]

vacation-car-rentalThe Festive season will soon be upon us once again and with it the pressure of finding entertaining things to see and do, for those of us with small children at least. For single people and couples, the same pressure to ‘perform’ during the Christmas period may not be present but almost everybody looks forward to getting out of the house at this time of year so our list of Xmas outing suggestions includes something for everybody.

Where to Go and What to Do this Christmas

If you are visiting from overseas, our affordable car hire in Perth will ensure that you can reach all the local attractions quickly and easily. Some of them can be reached by public transport but having access to your own car during your stay will make planning your itinerary much [...]

122511133Christmas is an exciting time to visit WA, with crowds of people flying in, arranging car rental at Perth Airport and setting out to visit with friends, family and loved ones in the region. But whether you’re from out of town and arranging car rental in Perth, or you live in the area and plan to do some driving this holiday season, it’s important to be aware of the potential risks.

With that in mind, here are five Christmas driving tips for anyone arranging budget car rental at Perth Airport:

Beware of Fatigue.
The Road Safety Commission (RSC) calls fatigue the “silent killer on Western Australia’s roads”. The RSC also adds that the reaction time of a driver who has been awake for 17-19 hours is similar to that of a driver with a blood [...]

104284134There’s nothing like summer in Perth. Sunny skies, warm weather and adventure are just around the corner. And when you have your own set of wheels and a little bit of time at your disposal, there’s really no limit to where you can go or what can you see. That’s the beauty of road trip season.

But in case you’re on the fence, here are five reasons to consider hitting the road this summer:

You Can Set Your Own Itinerary.
There’s something liberating about setting out on an open-ended journey – where you don’t have to see or explore a single attraction that you’re not interested in. A fair number of tourists fly into Perth, join a couple of packaged tours and perhaps take a cruise on the Margaret River. That’s fine for a certain [...]

105940480At Ace Rent A Car, we believe that the process of renting a vehicle should be as easy as buying a sandwich (with a little more documentation involved of course), not an ordeal that you dread and therefore put off until the very last minute because you simply don’t want to face it. When you organise car or van rental in Perth through us, we can promise you two things: firstly, we will make the experience as easy and hassle-free as we possibly can and, secondly, we will help you to find the very best deal possible for your needs. In short, we aim to ensure that every single one of our customers can enjoy affordable vehicle hire, without any of the problems that are a common occurrence when dealing with some other firms.

How to [...]

worried-man-on-phoneThe Australian Government has made huge strides to improve road safety over the years from lowering speed limits to imposing heavier penalties. Despite these efforts, car crashes continue to cost the Australia economy billions of dollars a year.

The reality is that no matter how safe if you are as a driver, all it takes is one second of inattention to get into a car accident. Roads could also be more dangerous due to bad weather or other drivers could simply get distracted and cause a crash to occur.

Regardless of how an accident happens, you need to know the next steps to take. Here is what to do in the event that you are in a car accident.

At the Scene of an Accident

By law, all drivers involved in automotive [...]

the-open-roadWestern Australia is a fantastic place for road trip enthusiasts and there can be few better cities in which to start an epic road trip than Perth. Whether you are here for a few weeks or a few months, you should definitely make the time to explore some of the local sights under your own steam: it really is the best way to become acquainted with the state and everything that it has to offer.

Enjoy the Open Road

While we would certainly recommend spending some time in the city, familiarising yourself with the local attractions, organising car hire in Perth and heading for the open road is something every visitor should also do, in our humble opinion. All the following routes start and finish in Perth so there is no need to worry about arranging [...]

vacation-car-rentalMany visitors from overseas are keen to organise car hire in Perth during their stay in Western Australia and a question we are therefore asked on a regular basis is how easy is it to arrange a rental package without an

Came down from England and Just hired a Hyundai for 3 weeks at Perth Albany Victoria Park office of Ace Rent A Car, just a km away from where I was staying. The staff are very friendly and the cost of the 3 weeks was the cheapest in the market with a brand new car. I travelled mostly to the south of Perth down to Albany after a week sight seeing in the area places like Denmark Walpole national park some of the taller trees in Australia, Stirling Range National Park I travelled across the wrist belt to wave rock and back. The car handled the bad roads I travelled North to the Pinnacles in the three weeks. Travelled some 3000 km. I did extra km worth 230$ but instead of charging me extra 0.28$ each km, they saved me the extra buck by only charging a 110$ by changing my km range. Very kind of them. Not greedy and believe in making relationships. Professional and helpful and very good lot of them.I will hire from them always on my trips to Perth and will suggest you all to also hire from them without worries on your holiday.

This is one of the best rental car experiences I have had hands down. I walked in and felt right at home. They were upfront about everything and even saved me some money with the miles. I would highly recommend this car company to anyone in Perth. I returned the car and they gave me many options to return. I have rented cars at a lot of places, with a lot of companies, and this one takes the cake.

We have rented a mini bus for 12 days to go around Pinnacles down to the Great Southern Region (Walpole, Denmark), WA. The mini-bus they provided us is almost new, clocking around 130 km. The vehicle is clean inside out. The best per day rate and service in the area! and nothing beats the kind gestures of the boss to discount me for the excess kilometers that I clock! 5/5 due to service, rate and vehicle conditions.

Wow, what an experience! My wife and I pre-booked a van hire today and could not be more satisfied.We only required the vehicle for two separate days, so not exactly a million dollar contract. (Their prices were extremely reasonable) and Commercial Services Director Ajay, completely understood our needs and patiently and professionally took us through the process - all in the space of ten minutes. We have used this company in the past and can't praise them highly enough.The very best customer service!

Chose Vic Park agency online on basis of reviews and proved to be a very wise choice. Ajay could not have been more helpful both at delivery and upon return. Little Toyoto did the job for two seniors and two big cases. Why stick with the multi-nationals when you can get service (with a smile) and great value from the smaller owner-operators? Many thanks Ace.
